The Bible declares: "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief." (1 Tim.1:15). Before his conversion to Christ the Jewish terrorist Saul of Tarsus (St. Paul) was guilty of killing Christians. That tells us that anyone with blood on their hands can be saved if they truly repent and believe on Christ. There is hope for the many Muslim terrorists who have killed Christians. Follow the example of Saul of Tarsus and ask the True God Jesus Christ our Lord, to forgive you and come into your heart and He will. That is the reason He came into this world. - Pastor Max Solbrekken

My name is David Bennett. After many years of Alcohol & Drug use, Jesus Christ Saved Me from certain Death & an eternal Hell!

Praise the Lord, Brother Max! My name is David Bennett and I am from the Northern Tutchone First Nation, Pelly Crossing, Yukon Territory. I am employed as a T.B worker and an Ambulance Supervisor in my Community for the Yukon Government.

I strongly believe that the Lord has put me in this position to win souls for His glory. I also like to play my guitar and sing praises unto the Lord Jesus Christ and be wherever He wants me to be, just for Him.

As far back as I can remember in my childhood while I was growing up, there was always alcohol in my home with my mother and my stepfather. I was physically abused by my stepfather and told that I would never amount to anything. It was pretty hard.

At the age of nine I had my first taste of alcohol and at the age of thirteen I was introduced to marijuana. From there on I started to lead a life of rebellion which led to my self-destruction. I started running away from home and getting into a lot of trouble. In my early twenties I became homeless and living on the streets of Whitehorse. When the bars would close I would either go to sleep on the ground under a tree or at anybodies home.

At the age of 39 I got introduced to crack cocaine. At first I thought that one rock of crack cocaine would be enough for me and then I would stop but it was not that way at all. I wanted more, so I began to take things from my own family and friends and from my job site just to support my habit!

One night, I was travelling back to Pelly Crossing from Whitehorse when a friend of mine and I decided to pull over on the highway to smoke a rock of crack cocaine. Suddenly, my heart began to beat very fast and I was having a hard time to breathe. I thought to myself: I do not want to die like this, but that did not make me stop. I kept on smoking crack cocaine!

It was not until I got very ill from what is called H-PYLORI that I was put on medications for that. Then, again I thought to myself: If I die, where am I going to go?There are two places, either Heaven or Hell, and I did not want to go to Hell.

October 15, 2005 was the day that I went to see Sister Lizzie Hall (Hager) and her husband Teddy and told them how I felt and what I wanted to do. So, right there, that very night in their home, I got down on my knees and Sister Lizzie and her husband Teddy led me to the Lord Jesus.

And right there, I was delivered and freed from all the drugs and alcohol, diseases and other infirmities that I had! And to this day I have been serving the Lord Jesus and I will never turn back because this world has nothing to offer me anymore! That is my testimony, Brother Max!

Your brother in Jesus Christ our Lord,
DAVID J.BENNETT, December 22, 2011
